“Big Foot” Silva on Brock Lesnar: “I think he must return to his fake fights that it’ll be best for him”

Former EliteXC heavyweight champion, Antonio “Big Foot” Silva has been the latest fighter to dub former UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar a “fake fighter”, adding the sooner he returns to the world of professional wrestling the better.

Silva, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“Man, I think he must return to his fake fights that it’ll be best for him. I’ve always said that, he’s not a better fighter than Fedor, or Minotauro, or Cigano… He’s not the number one. I’ve said that when Werdum beat Fedor, who would become the number one? To me, it must have been Wedum because he had just beat the number one, but no. they put Brock Lesnar as the first, Werdum on the second place and Fedor in third. For sure now the top position is on good hands because Cain is a great fighter, he’s complete, has proven to have a good ground game, a good Wrestling and he’s a good exchanger. Now it’s on good hands. It was ridiculous for us, fighters, to see Brock Lesnar with only four or five bouts being considered the top athlete on earth, it’s ridiculous. And people like Cain Velasquez, Cigano, Fedor and Minotauro coming after Brock Lesnar… He’s a fake fighter.”
